The highly-anticipated second film hits Japanese theaters December 20, 2019
In addition to Nine (Yoshio Inoue) and Slice (Mio Imada), the official website for the upcoming anime feature film My Hero Academia THE MOVIE Heroes: Rising has revealed two more original villain characters newly designed by the My Hero Academia manga author Kohei Horikoshi: Mummy (Kousuke Toriumi) and Chimera (Shunsuke Takeuchi).
Mummy is described as "an enemy with a ninja-like appearance wearing a full body bandage." His voice cast Kousuke Toriumi says, "I participated in 'Hiroaca' and enjoyed recording very much at the session with so much passionate heat. I am excited to see the film's completion myself soon, and I hope everyone will look forward to it."
Meanwhile, Chimera is introduced as "a deformed-type enemy who has overwhelming combat power." His voice cast Shunsuke Takeuchi comments, "I think many people are wondering what kind of character Chimera is because he is the film's original villain. In this film, the theme of 'What is true justice and evil?' and 'Who decides its standard?' is drawn through powerful battles. I think you can enjoy this film more by watching it not only once but many times. I hope you will love it."
The highly-anticipated second feature film from the My Hero Academia anime franchise, My Hero Academia THE MOVIE Heroes: Rising is scheduled to be released in Japan on December 22, 2019.
